This ongoing video blog series features insightful information on healthy food choices and nutrition topics that impact your day-to-day life. Selecting the right fruits, vegetables and other healthy grocery items assists in helping keep your family healthy.
Good nutrition starts with smart choices in grocery stores and local farmers markets. Cooking up healthy meals is often a challenge if you don’t have the right ingredients in your kitchen. But with a little guidance, healthy choices are a cinch to find in many grocery markets.
Plan Ahead for Healthy Eating
The process starts even before you head to the grocery store. First, plan your meals for a week or two, then create a list to shop from. This will only take you a few minutes, yet will save you time and money! Most of us tend to eat the same foods over and over again. But a little variety is the spice of life. Once in awhile, be adventurous and aim to try a new fruit or vegetable each week. To help meet the nutritious needs of you and your family, fill your cart with plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meat, protein rich items, and nuts.
